About me

User interactions and the extremes of their experiences intrigue me. I started as a Biomedical Engineer and branched into a significantly broader realm of products, services, and systems design. As a result, my PhD research led to a framework for designing with extreme-user experiences. 


Over the past eight years, I have co-created and collaborated with industry partners, researchers, and end-users from domains like healthcare, cyber security, assistive technology, cognitive science, and general education. My expertise and interest are in transforming latent user needs into innovative design solutions that embrace inclusion.
